Forum: forums Subject: Movies converted to the wrong dimensions!

I've recently uploaded some movies that were converted to the wrong dimensions. These movies (originally uploaded as mpeg 2) were incorrectly converted to a 720x480 mp4. The stream does not play correctly because the archive.org window plays it in a 320x400 embedded player. The picture is extremely cropped.

Does anybody know what happened? I followed the same procedure I've taken before.

You can view an example of this here:

If you play the stream you will see a cropped picture. If you download the mp4, you can see the whole picture in a stand alone player which appears to be 720x480.

Anybody know what happened?

Jin

Hey Jim, I watched the file streamed and it looks fine to me.

The same thing happened to the video I uploaded a couple of days ago. Rather than cropped, the video is compressed in streaming playback, making a tall skinny image.
